Lånekassen’s Appeal Board

The Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research has appointed an appeals board to which Lånekassen decisions can be appealed.

Lånekassen’s Appeal Board’s interpretation and application of the regulations will provide guidance for Lånekassen’s future processing of similar cases.

Appeals deadline and proceedings

In the event that Lånekassen has made a decision that you believe to be incorrect pursuant to the regulations, you may submit a signed, written appeal to Lånekassen. You must lodge the appeal within three weeks of receiving notification of the decision. You cannot appeal the regulations, only their application.

Members are appointed for a term of three years at a time, with the exception of pupil and student representatives, who are appointed for a term of one year at a time.
